Trevor Wishart is an English composer whose work deals with the technological transformation and manipulation of the human voice.
Educated at the universities of Oxford, Nottingham and York, Wishart is a freelance composer of fixed and interactive digital media who has also written extensively on the topic of what he terms “sonic art”, and contributed to the design and implementation of software tools used in the creation of digital music; notably, the Composers Desktop Project.
Trevor Wishart’s compositional interests deal mainly with the human voice most evident in his albums Red Bird/Anticredos, and the VOX Cycle, as well as in the compositions Tongues of Fire, Globalalia, Two Women and American Triptych.
He is also a solo voice performer and an improviser of extended vocal techniques, often using the recordings of his own improvisations to compose his electroacoustic pieces.
